Watershed Communications Group

Cam Landell and Brian Musgrove, Founding Partners 
At Watershed Communications Group we love to work with clients who are looking for a change of course.

Watershed is a small yet nonetheless full-service advertising and communications team. We use our vast experience establishing and growing brands to help our clients achieve not just change, but the right kind of change that leads to better market recognition and sales.
Watershed is a noun that means a critical point that marks a change of course. In our view, it describes the place most brands presently find themselves. With an ever-changing array of channels, patterns and partners in front of them, even experienced marketers are now often left wondering what their next moves should be. Our name simply pays homage to this new reality, because frankly, we think it’s a pretty exciting one. 

If you are thinking of changing your branding, advertising mix, sales materials, social media or web design, Watershed might be the best call you ever make.
